Source: NetGalley for review
Originally published in "Predatory" 
"In Dianne Duvall s world of Immortal Guardians, the stakes for mortals are high, but the cost especially to the heart might be higher " 
It s not the first time Immortal Guardian Richart d Alencon has saved a human life from eternal damnation. Usually, he moves on, a nameless savior like a ghost in the night. But this time he can t seem to forget the woman who rewarded him with a sensuous kiss after he rescued her from a trio of vampires. While Richart knows that loving a human can only bring trouble, the taste of forbidden lust is too great to resist 
Jenna never imagined she d end up a single mom working overtime to put her son through school. But she might have daydreamed once that a devastatingly gorgeous Frenchman would sweep her off her feet. Now that a package of tall, dark, and handsome seems intent on doing just that, doctors are telling her she may not have long to live. But Richart is telling her just the opposite. All she has to do is abandon her humanity
My thoughts:
I reviewed this one already when I reviewed Predatory so I thought I'd do a short review.

If you love the Immortal Guardian's series, this is a novella you shouldn't miss. You can also read it if you haven't read the others. It is the sweet story of Richart and Jenna. It is short and sweet and you immediately root for both characters. I love how much she packed into one little novella. I give it 4 stars and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good PNR.

  3. I love this series so much Melissa!!! Though I can't help but hope Seth or David might get a book sometime soon. I know they'll be toward the end though. *sigh*

  4. I'm a huge fan of Duvall's Immortal Guardians, and I read this one back when Predatory was first released too. I only wish that Richart had gotten a longer story.

  7. I know nothing of this series. It is nice though that the novella is worth the read, too many are just fillers.

  12. Thank you for always including if it can be read as a stand alone. I always kind of glance right over a review if it's from a series but sometimes you can jump in.
